Hmm, looks like I have plenty of unexplored territory on the right.

How much of the Ender series have you read? I really enjoyed Ender's Game but was hugely disappointed in Speaker for the Dead and never got back to the series. It felt nothing at all like the original novel and even Ender didn't feel like Ender to me.

Does it get any better or is it all ~Space Jesus~ from now on? I mean, I realise that the author is a devout Mormon but he actually had something good going there, for a while, and it's a shame to see him attempting to turn it into a full on religious moral lesson.

I've read a bit of both the main series and the Bean spin-off, but I was never as impressed by them as the first book.

In my mind Ender's Game stands above them as one of the books I'm glad I've read, while the others are just passable. Nothing wrong with them, they just feel like a different series. And they never evoked the same feel that Ender's Game did.

There's a lot of classic science fiction I still need to read, and oddly enough I haven't read anything on the left side (unless getting partway through Watership Down counts).

The whole story gets really ridiculous by the end of Children of the Mind, and for entirely different reasons than the Space Jesus thing. I'll still read the next installment if Card ever gets around to writing it, though

Sure, why not. Didn't mark some stuff cause I just don't remember it well enough to say whether I read it.
Looks like there's a few things on the left I might try, sci-fi on the other hand doesn't interest me much.

This thing's too big for me to see it all at once so I'm far too lazy to compare yours to mine.
